Olympic Obsession!


I can't be the only one who stays up till the wee hours of the morning with Olympic fever..?? Sure I have DVR (with only a few hours left I might add),....but with 2 little ones that I don't want to ignore and a sincere hang up with watching something after it makes headlines, I have found myself chanting, cheering, and crying well into the AM's every night of these inspiring Olympics. I'm not kidding when I say I think I have seen every minute of NBC's Olympic coverage (except of course the commercials, and some of the daytime team sports- no offense water polo, I just can't handle thinking of you treading water that whole time, seriously? How? I can't watch it. You rock though.)

There is nothing like it! Seriously. The capabilities of the human body, the power of hard work and training, the setting and achieving of goals, the spirit of unity. I LOVE IT! It makes me want to go hug my neighbors and train for a marathon at the same time!

I'll be compiling a list of my favorite moments. I doubt it could be kept to a top ten. Far too exciting! Go USA, Go World!

I'm so with you! Oh, that weight lifter holding up the picture of his dead wife--sooooo sad!

Love that crazy Misty May. Hope the Chinese get stripped of their cheating gymnastics metals. The U.S. relay teams broke my heart. Happy for the Canadian Equestrian.

Okay. Seriously. Did you really watch rythmic gymnastics? Come on.

Well, my dear sweet Sara, thank you for letting Kaylie and I come and "move in" for a few weeks. we had so much fun with everyone. now I even miss you all more.(counting the days until Christmas..) love you, happy day, Momma
